Cleaning Wooden Dishes
Wooden dishes are great, but without the proper care they can get cracked and worn really easily! Here are some ways to care for that wood.
1. Season your dishes with mineral oil on a soft cloth. (Try not to use vegetable or olive oil, it can become rancid and ruin your dishes).
2. Never submerge wooden dishes, they'll crack. Instead scrub them with a mild detergent on a soft cloth or a little baking soda and water, rinse them clean and dry immediately.
3. For a nasty smell stuck in your cutting board, sprinkle the board with some salt, cut a lemon in half and use the lemon to scrub the smells away. Then just rinse and dry.
